How Cold Will a Amazon Sword Go?

Hi everyone,
I'm thinking of starting a NA native tank with the smaller sunfish running the temps 65'-70'. Will the swords handle that cool water or will die off?

I think they will do okay. I had them in an unheated tank for about a year and they did very well. I do not know the exact temps but the tank was in a room addition to the house so it did not get kept heated. I would imagine it got down to 65.
I live in an apartment with almost no heating. For a while, it got down to 50's at night. My swords were unaffected. I have a portable heater now. :)
